My Days Have Slipped Away

poem

My Days Have Slipped Away

by Shahinur Islam


My days have slipped light years away,

leaving some wrinkly, bluish memories

in the heart-lake of silence.

Like the dusk crawling up into the dark

the lotus of words has got stolen,

the leaves staring like stars

as if with the devotion of thousands of years.

Dark nights have eaten away the watery moonlight,

so all the symphonies lie beyond the horizon.

Like a shadow remains the ghost of darkness,

making the heart of the lake unsettled.
